Xbox 360 Dead

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Last night, my brother tells me "look the 4 red lights!!!" while playing NFS:MW and I was like WTH!? Not much of a biggie because of the AV Cables thing. Fixed and ready to play. He Continues Playing NFS:MW. Next morning, I'm looking forward to play some Quake 4. I turn on the 360 with the controller and to my suprise it turns on with 3 Red Lights on the Ring of Light. Dead.
I only had it for about 5 weeks, and it turns out to be dead with the Red Ring of Death. I thought I wasnt going to get it. Well it served well, but it works now (with freezes) but I have to send it to Microsoft's "repair" center. Because as we all know, Temporary Red Rings = Dying Xbox 360. I'm gettting it replaced for free under the 90 Day Warranty. Now I just got to wait for that UPS Box (Wait 5 Business Days)>Send it in (FREE Shipping)>The Day they recieve it, in about 12 Business day's I'll get a new one if its beyond repair.
Microsoft's Customer Care is very good and fast. My brother is currenty playing the hell out of NFS:MW because its already going to be sent it anyways. I'll keep you guys updated about the returning proccess.

Depends on your location too. I live in the Bay and it shouldnt take THAT long to send it back and forth between Texas (Repair Center Located there).

I want Microsoft to recall consoles just like what they did with the Original Xbox's Power Cord.

Update:
Recieved my UPS Box from M$. 2 Boxes, 1 box that holds the Xbox 360 and Info Paper, Covered by the Outer Box. The Box seems a bit "old". Contents of UPS Box from M$:
1 UPS Tracking/Shipping Sticker
1 Seal
1 Info Sheet w/ Instructions (Fill out Form)
and of Course the Bag that holds the Xbox 360.
Everything is nice and packed. For 1 Exception! When I shake the box a bit, the Xbox 360 moves around Half an inch. Left, Down, Right, Up.
I'm shipping it tomorrow so I'll update tomorrow.
Note: Write down Tracking # and Your Serial Number and Reference # down so just in Case M$ wants to pull a fast one on you.
